New people, welcome to Mastodon and the Fediverse!

Here's how to get started:

1. Find some people to follow over on @FediFollows, and through Trunk (communitywiki.org/trunk)

2. Find out your Mastodon/Fediverse address so you can share it with friends (mstdn.social/@feditips/1072482)

3. Invite people to join you on here by telling them to go to joinmastodon.org and click on "Get Started". It doesn't matter if they join a different server because the servers talk to each other (here's a bit more of an explanation mstdn.social/@feditips/1070214)

4. Find out what the Fediverse is (mstdn.social/@feditips/1070440)

5. Find out why Mastodon being on so many different servers/instances is a really good thing (mstdn.social/@feditips/1070837)

6. If you see anything nasty, you can report it to your friendly server admin (mstdn.social/@feditips/1065401)

7. You can (sort of) verify your account if you own a website (mstdn.social/@feditips/1062741)

If you have any questions, @ me or DM me!

I spent DAYS searching for the right case for my new iPhone and it had never occurred to me to check and see if the cases I already owned for my other phones were available for my new phone.

To my surprise my favorite case for my Palm Phone is available for the iPhone 13 Mini!

I <3 the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle!

Basically twins!!! 🀣

To everyone who willing went into web dev: who hurt you?

Installing #PeerTube on your server is like creating your own free-libre alternative to "YouTube", where you choose the name ▢️ ! Documentation and official support will guide you through this adventure.

If you think about it, text editors aren't very Unix like since they read AND write files and that is 2 things, not 1 thing 😎

All of my Tweets are just x-posts from Mastodon so I can't see any replies or DMs sent via Twitter.

I apologize for any confusion that's caused.

You can add me on Discord though (KuJoe#0001). πŸ˜‰

Today is my... ? day off of Twitter.

It feels nice not chasing views, likes, follows, and other engagement.

The dopamine hit you get when somebody interacts on your content is nice, but it's just too unhealthy for me.

So many TOTP authenticator apps out there but so few let you automatically sort alphabetically.

I would love it if Aegis had an iOS version.

Switching over to iOS and I've spent hours trying to find a new password manager. KeePass is no longer an option for me, but all of the other solutions seem just as bad. Every time I think I've decided, I find something that doesn't work and have to switch. 😩

KeePass is great, but syncing between different devices does not work unless I use an insecure FTP server. Also, a monthly subscription for KeePass? Hard pass.

Is the Steam Link box good in 2022? We're about to find out!

Sincere apologies for all of the issues today with the new server. I keep finding little things to tweak and fix and just now realized our DNS and CDN were not properly setup. Everything should be resolved now including uploads and properly serving videos over the Cloudflare CDN.

I find myself going through more batteries than normal over the past year, so I decided to grab some rechargeable batteries for the devices I most use.

They're a little pricey after the cost of the charger + extra batteries, but they'll pay for themselves after a handful of charges. πŸ‘

VideOpen.net has been migrated to a new server and is back online.

The previous server, while useable, did not provide the performance I was hoping so I've migrated to a private server.

Enjoy!

Self-care is ongoing. It's not a one and done fix for everything. Take care of yourself today, and tomorrow, and the next day.

Have a new site for people to watch my videos: VideOpen.net videopen.net/c/gregandcin_tech

I am currently upload a good about of my backlog to the account, and another great place on the to follow me on! All my new videos will be uploaded there the same time as YouTube, or maybe even sooner if they transcode faster :)

Just read this on another social platform and I like it :blobcatgiggle:​

"Mastodon doesn't have a quote function at all. The argument is that people should talk with each other and not about each other."

I was talking to somebody the other day and they didn't know this keyboard shortcut so I'm going to share it in case it helps somebody else.

In Windows 10 (maybe others?) press Win Key + ; on your keyboard to insert an emoji.

Please use this tip responsibly. πŸ˜‰

I always said if I had to do my audio setup all over again I would just get an Elgato Wave mic and be done with it...

Well I decided to do my audio all over again. πŸ˜†

My GoXLR Mini was really nice, and for how inexpensive it is I highly recommend them if you have an XLR mic, but if you want a set it and forget it solution this is it. πŸ‘
